thanks a lot wilfredtjones!
Did DL mention about why or why not a vault index would or would not be released for Deadheads? I don't believe Archive and E-T have everything in the vault.
Just that it would be useful to know what to buy, considering what I already have.
in response to your question, yes please do it again. Lots of interesting info and insights there and you covered a lot of ground. Am really excited about Dave's Picks 2. Bit disappointed that there is no new video on the near horizon and that they are just going to recycle what is there already (with some bonus material of course to make us buy it all again!). Still if there was nothing to complain about we would be complaining about that.
Folks, you can still watch the chat on
I didn't catch anything on the Pury Jerry front. However, Dave did mention a 14 disc box set rerelease of all the video material released thus far. He seemed especially keen on the 'So Far' release with 'Backstage Pass' as a bonus feature. He mentioned that a ton of good video is in the vault, but much of it is from the unusable (Dave's sentiment) years of '94-'95. And yes, the next DaP will be complete show Hartford 7-31-74. There will be a bonus disc with the release but it hasn't yet been determined the contents - - he mentioned the contents could be culled from the '74 Pacific Northwest tour. The decision should be made by February according to what I heard. I'm hoping the 5-25 Santa Barbara show remains untapped so that it can be released in its entirety someday. I'm not sure if DaP 2 will include Phil and Ned or not. Dave also mentioned that the entire chat will be archived and available on Dead.net.
...well done, Dave. Excited about the first two Dave's Picks. Glad I subscribed. So, will "Seastones" be included with Dave's Pick Two? Here's hoping it will be!
just couldn´t follow the live chat, so asking here:
where there some hints on forthcoming new Pure Jerrys or Box sets or DVDs or other releases;
the next Dave´s Picks is really from 1974?
would like to read the chat somewhere too!
Is there any way to view the transcript of the chat? Surely it's saved somewhere?
Very enjoyable, a nice experience that exceeded my expectations. The stories, such as the Bear one, were really cool. The hour flew by. Awesome that it was available immediately after the live stream. Would love a hint on the next box set if this is done again. Although I don't expect any serious live Jerry releases any time soon, keeping everyone's hopes up would be some consolation.
It was great hanging with ya, Dave.
I should send ya a picture so you
can see me too. Oh well, Maybe a link
to one. Great job tonight!
Did I miss my question getting answered?
Lord knows I pushed it in there.
Keep the love and the roses they matter
more than a tape release.
Videos from the 60's and 70's. There are a lot of bootleg copies of professionally shot shows out there. Many you probably don't have the rights to, but others like Durham, NC 1978 and all the Capital Theater, Passaic, NJ shows and, most especially, the full show videos popping up on Wolfgang's Vault (New Year's run 1977, New Year's run 1980...)... I assume you folks could be releasing beautiful transfers of these with lossless sound mixes (on Blu-ray). Either as separate releases or as a CD/DVD/Blu-ray package. Are there any plans for these? And if not, how can we inspire you to release this priceless footage of full shows from the Grateful Dead's peak era?
